I received a good news e-mail from SingTel’s corporate communications department this morning, telling me that the access issue at my blog has been fixed!
I also read some of your comments in my other posts that you’re finally able to access my blog.
No, wait, why so conservative?
THREE BILLION CHEERS!! =D
I would like to thank all my readers for bearing with the situation over the last few weeks and for taking the time to feedback to me and to help me with testing and trace route reports.
I would like to thank readers who didn’t give up on my blog and for continuously trying to access it!
I also want to thank SingNet for heeding my SOS e-mail and going all out to help me fix the problem. The technical support people even contacted my USA webhost to work on resolving the issue.
I’m really impressed that they bothered to help me and went on to tackle the problem with great efficiency!
Well, looks like it’s working now! *cross fingers*
So, I am declaring today Open House Day at Sheylara.com!!
Er… please come in and visit, make yourself at home, um, help yourself to some virtual refreshments.
Well, the Internet is virtual, anyway.
I will be online all day (doing work, in case you’re wondering) so drop in and chat with me through my comments! =)
And have a great day ahead!

And what’s the last pic for? Jolly Shandy Lychee kept you cool during this period of frustration?
TMD… just a pic to show I’m happy can? *bisH*
Welcome back to the Singnet server!
The product placement is simply too UN-subtle!
HURRAY! YES! WOOHOO!
Finally!~ No more suffering n frustrations over the weekends for not being able to read Sheylara blog….. *eyes red*
Now, I would like to be alone now…. *sob* *sob*
qiaoyun, how come you got hamster again?
Dun *bisH* me… I got paint brush!! Grrr……
betshopboy: Hahaha, thanks. But you another one asking for a *bish*. That’s not product placement lah… I’m not paid for this! :P
tiger4: Yay yay… thanks so much for your undying support all these weeks despite the difficulties!!! *pat on back* *sob sob*
binary_0011: That’s my old hamster from an archive photo. :(
The Goonfather: Haha… you threaten me with paintbrush? I will paste sticker on your face again! :P
hmm…. my paint brush pic ain’t showing…. Ok ok…. I surrender!!
@Sheylara: Hehe, the virtual refreshments look so familiar… Neopets, anyone?:)
The Goonfather: Must be my spam filter think you’re a spam bot. haha.
RN1209: Heheh… I was wondering who would be the first to recognise those pics! ;) Well done!
@Sheylara: Of course lar… i don’t want to kena *bish* mah:)
haha.. you’re the smartest! ;)
yay finally :) kept getting URL error from my ping.sg feeds. So did they give an “official” reason? I know other sites having the same problems.
@Sheylara: Why, thank you! Your mind is quite the steel trap as well:) Actually, I think its a privilege to be *bish-ed* by you, but I already have my fair share at home, hehe:)
@GF: Better dun mess with Miss Watson. She got very strong arms. Hahaha
Shen: I didn’t get an official reason and I didn’t ask, either. I’m just happy that it’s resolved. But it has something to do with IP blocking relating to my webhost.
RN1209: Haha… it has been commented before that it’s painful being hit by me cos my bones are very hard (and I’m skinny lah, so got reduced pain absorption, haha).
tiger4: lol… you remembered my previous Star Blog post!! Very good. Give you one “Get out of Bish Free” card. :P
@tiger4: Bro, you may wish to trade this card with the Goonfather for something else. He needs it more than you do:)
nooo moreee problems..
RN1209: Haha… in the same vein, ONE card wouldn’t help him much. :P
heartless: Yay! Thanks very much for your past feedback!
@Sheylara: Aiyah, don’t like that leh… i know he’s a tough guy, but enough *bisHes* from you and even the toughest guys will need medical attention. Who will answer your straw poll next time?:)
@Sheylara: Wah, I’m honoured! But… I’m getting some armour ready just in case, hehe:)
Your best armour would be your two chipmunks. One look at them my heart melt already lah… no more violence left. :P
@Sheylara: Hehe, so sweet of you to say that:) I see whether I can bring my “chipmunks” during the GOW2 launch:)
oh great finally i can view it at home :D
Cool!! Seems like confirmed it’s working already! Thanks for letting me know! :)
snce is a open house, no door gifts? refreshment no enough le…
What gift do you want? (Virtual only, haha) ;P
U happy, I happy !!! :D
anyways, just letting u guys know that my blog will stay idle…. coz I am focusing on my book writing project.
Wow… book writing project sounds cool! How long are you going to be hibernation for? :P
a few months till my book get published
Anyways, I am playing a cool online simulation game now… pretty interesting and educational
(dont forget to write about it on GGF :P *wink* )
congrats, im finally able to access ur site after 1 month of restriction.
Relax: The only comment I have on your chartgame thing is… OMFG. lol.
muscular: Yay! Thanks! And sorry for the 1 month of wasted time! :(
Yup… a game out of expectation
here’s my performance
Haha… frankly speaking… the world of finance is on a different planet as far as I’m concerned. :P
have u ever thought of writing a book? (since you are a pro writer)
@Relax: Wow, thanks for the link. Can put my skills to the test now without incuring the cost. :P
wei… dun tell me u never play simulation stock trading before doing the real thing? OMFG? hahaha
Relax: The last time I had a serious wish to write a book was when I was about 11. As I grew up, I realised that I didn’t have the discipline (nor the passion) to plan and execute the entire tedious process of writing a book. I prefer to write one-off short pieces.
By the way, I don’t know ANYONE who plays stock simulation games before doing the real thing.
@Relax: No, what I did is do paper trading with the current market data. I duno there are such websites. Still a noobie n one at a bad time. :(
i felt so “deprived” from ur daily updates.
*ahem* it’s gd to be back. :D
Yay! Thanks for not giving up on me!! :)
Open house finally! I love the lychee & peach jolly btw!
WELCOME TO MY OPEN HOUSE!! :)
Oh yeah, lychee and peach jolly FTW! :) So you tried it also, huh?
But it’s SOOOOO hard to find lah. I’m very irritated!! I haven’t seen it anywhere in a month! *sigh*
Jolly Sandy…the lychee flavor is weird O.O lemon is still the best tasting one.
what?! no steak or chicken wings? :(
@Nadnut: Hello, i think the Open House is over lar… you only got leftovers, hehe:) I was actually looking for durians too, but I doubt if Neopets have such an image:)
Relax: That is not a game!! That is WORK!! haha….
Hey! Great to hear that.. haha… and can I join the party? :P
@curryegg: Yes, you can. You can start by cleaning up the mess we create from the party yesterday. LOL
just joking. All are welcome
Ralph: The lychee flavour is not weird! I prefer it to the lemon cos it’s a little sweeter, not so sour. I love mixing beer with sweet drinks… like beer + OJ, beer + Ribena, beer + ice lemon tea. very nice! :P
nadnut: Hmm… I couldn’t find, lol. :P Next time bah…
RN1209: Haha… don’t be mean… the food is self-replenishing cos it’s virtual, haha… :P OMG don’t say durians!! Now you just gave me a huge craving again! :(
curryegg: JOIN THE PARTEEEEEEEE!! WELCOME! :) And thanks for dropping by! :)
tiger4: Haha… next time I should include party poppers and streamers… then there’ll be a real mess to clean up!
So is the Goonfather your boyfriend? As in, frankly speaking. Because I got the idea from your “About The Goonfather” page. Just asking though.
I usually drink milk or green tea. But seeing you with that can of Jolly Shandy really brought back memories.
I was probably 15 or 16 when I drank Jolly Shandy! I had no idea it still existed.
Party Chic: Yes, he is.
Dedrick: I love milk! You sound very healthy, hehe. :P I never drank Jolly Shandy until they came out with the lychee and peach flavours. I got seduced by the colourful pink cans… haha. :P
@Sheylara: Oh no! I’m sorry, I didn’t realise that the mere mention of the fruit has such an effect on you:) I’ll take note next time, hehe:)
yay.. good to see a lot of common names back….
time to celebrate!!!… hahahaha.. =>
I bought those jollys at NTUC, its the only place I can find, and they only come in packs of 4-cans…
But they’re great!
you guys make it sound like very nice. Will try it out when I get my hands on it ;)
RN1209: It’s okay… you can do it again, but then you have to make up for it by buying me makan.. haha :P
aig: yay! Good to see you too! :)
Cornflict: Which NTUC did you find it at? Cos I’ve looked in a few NTUCs and they don’t have it. I bought my first 4-pack in Cold Storage Katong… but then they always seem to be out of stock after that. :(
tiger4: Yeah… try it if you can find it…. lol!
I tot it’s a real open house. I’m so disappointed… :(
u and your jolly shandy… lol.
anw yay(x1000) for being able to come back here finally :D
@Sheylara: I have no problems getting you makan, but the real question is, would you even have the time to eat?:)
wow, I must be really lucky then! I found it at Bukit Merah NTUC, the first time I tried finding. Its far from your place =)
Horizon: Er… but it says open house at Sheylara.com leh, and this is as real as a blog open house can get already lah :P
shin: YAY! Happy to see you! Haven’t seen you for so long!
RN1209: Haha… that’s true. Um.. no problem, got free makan from my good pal, I sure make time! haha. :P
Cornflict: I WILL GO TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH TO GET MY JOLLY SHANDY LYCHEE!!! :P

Technically yes, but probably only me around. haha.
Haha, that’s cool with me. ;)
